Mike Murphy says if the Scrubs get an add'l pitcher, they will trade John Lieber and Bill Mueller for Scott Rolen. Dont know if its a financial thing, but this was in the Philadelphia Paper today:

What do the Phillies have in common with the Montreal Expos, Minnesota Twins, Florida Marlins, Kansas City Royals, Tampa Bay Devil Rays and other less-than-robust major league franchises?

According to sources, the Phillies were one of eight teams to receive more than $10 million in revenue sharing - $11.7 million to be precise - last year.

The figures were revealed at the recent owners' meetings in Chicago and all teams had to sign a confidentiality agreement.

Philadelphia was the largest single-team market to receive assistance and ranked seventh, according to the sources. The Montreal Expos, at $29.5 million, got the most money. . .and also have reportedly been targeted for contraction."
